Intercomunal prayer

Clearly, one of the most fundamental ways we can work towards Our eventual unity is to pray for and with one another. All Christians are called to do this to some extent. As Catholics and Anglicans, I think that one of the most beautiful opportunities we have of doing this is to share in one another’s liturgy. The liturgy is a framework on which all our other prayer is grounded. It is a gift which not all of our Christian brothers and sisters have And for which we should be truly thankful.
Attending a liturgy which is not your own can be a profoundly moving experience. One day in the next couple of weeks I would like to challenge you to attend either daily mass or evensong in the tradition which is not your own. While you are there reflect on the similarities and differences between the two liturgies. I would love for you to comment on this post with your experiences.
